Our 2017 conference will highlight the growth of experiential education around the world.  To that end, we will be hosting several keynote speakers from different countries to present on the current successes, challenges, and opportunities facing experiential educators in their region.  We are excited to follow the advice of last year's keynote, Richard Louv, and work to 'build a bigger boat' by engaging more fully with our international community.

Stay tuned for details!





"Experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you." - Aldous Huxley

And all it takes is you - whoever you are. You don't need to have had one million experiences, but rather made meaning of one that you are ready to share with us around the proverbial campfire.

ActivatEE is sharing platform designed by the Association for Experiential Education for its members and conference attendees during the International Conference. ActivatEE is a developmental process, both for the speaker and the audience, where we share ideas, test assumptions, and are asked to view a perspective through a different lens. ActivatEE is designed to facilitate the process of creating one’s story, inspiring the use of one’s voice, and launching an idea - all on stage during a conference keynote.
